Literacy and Maths: The children will take part in Literacy and Maths focussed work every morning.
Reading books: Reading books are changed weekly on a Thursday morning; It is important that reading books are returned on this day. Please can you ensure your child has a book bag and we also ask that you make a note in your child's reading record of any reading you do with them at home.
Reading records: At Elm Wood we consider reading to be an important part of your child's education and the reading record is a method of communication and an opportunity for you to share with us how your child is doing.
PE- Class 2 will have PE sessions once a week on a Wednesday morning. PE kits can be kept in school for the full half term.
Music - We are following the Charanga Scheme. Lessons this term are entitled Big Bear Funk
Open mornings- Elm Wood has an open morning every Thursday from 8.45am. This is a great opportunity for you to come into the classroom to look at displays, see your child’s work in their books and speak to the class teacher.
School uniform- Can we please ask for all items of clothing to be labelled with your child’s name or initials. Please can you ensure that your child has a labelled pair of wellington boots in school for outdoor use.
